Screening and Plate Optimization for Flexo Seminar

Get a behind-the-scenes look at optimizing all of the variables in the flexo plate selection process. Round top or flat top? Hard or soft durometer? Which of the three dozen screening options should I choose? How do I determine my minimum dot? We'll be conducting several print trials with all of these variables on multiple substrates, with both UV and water-based inks. Working with industry experts, you will learn how each variable interacts to affect print outcomes and develop an understanding of how to achieve optimum and repeatable results on every plate, every press run.

Hands-on Sessions:

  • Plate, Stickyback and Screening Variables on Various Substrates
  • Plate Imaging, Evaluation and Process Control
  • Establishing Optimal Screening and Calibration Curves
  • Plate Exposing, Processing, Measurement and Process Control

Presentations Topics Include:

  • The Digital Workflow
